I was on a trip this week, and was pacing a train as I was riding along Highway 58 over Tehachapi Pass. This locomotive was the third on the train. This grab shot was from the car as the train was rolling through the town of Tehachapi, CA.
CN 346 passes with his usual mixture of Sulphur tanks and Lumber products. I love the 346! CN 2406 trails, who would come back to haunt me on Halloween! The 346 doesn't have DPUs so very much anymore...
After losing my Scanner, CN 199 came through with a nice mixed consist. After that, I went back to the house before the ghosts came out! This could be CN 111 or 115. But he runs with the 2406, who I spotted on 346 days before, so this probably came from Chicago.
BCR 4618 belts out a few toots of its K5H as it prepares to ditch its Dynamics for Full power for the assault up to Tisdall and beyond...
Other units in the consist include BCOL 759 and BCOL 3911, and about 37 Loaded cars.
CN SD60F 5541 and C40-8M 2446 take off west make a hell of a noise. They were just held for a westbound, and they have alot of reefer containers to get east. Out of most units, I have to say notheg on the CN smokes more than the C40-8M's. Except The C44-9Wl's I saw last week.
